after screwing things up. george bush celebrated by going to his local dennys dressed in a flight suit and ordering the grand slam breakfast. people have signed a petition objecting to comments on that c in my n perceived as sympathetic to the steubenville rapist. there is a number any rapist can call if they feel the stress. phillip roth is 80 and bob dylan's album was released 51 years ago today. if you're angry about the iraq anniversary, we're all 56 now. ♪ theme ♪ >> i'm john fugelsang. ten years ago the invasion of iraq began. we all know what followed, zambrano hussein's regime was top would u.s. troops found themselves in a quagmire as civil war broke out. the u.s. adopted a counter insurgency strategy. whether it really succeeded is till a matter of intense debate. there is no debate that it prepared the ground for a u.s. pullout, allowing president obama's spokesman jay carney to remind reporters today that this president fulfilled his promise to end the war. >> he fill filled that promise in a way that allowed iraq to have the best possible chance to provide for a better
passionate minority. i was there from the start. i can remember marching, urging president bush to stop the war. i can still remember comforting anti-war activists like cindy sheehan. i met her near president bush's texas ranch. at camp casey. named for her son. he was killed in action in the war. from day one, i didn't agree with the invasion of iraq. but i always knew how important it was to support our troops. especially when they came home. the president talked about it in his state of the union. >> we will keep faith with our veterans. investing in world class care, including mental health care. for our wounded warriors. supporting our military families. giving our veterans the benefits and education and job opportunities that they have earned. >> over 1.1 million americans served in iraq, and over 32,000 returned home with severe combat wounds. it's a big reason why 45% of veterans from iraq and afghanistan are seeking disability assistant. it's a staggering number. the wait time for that help is even worse. on average, it's over 300 days for our newest veterans. our veter
. i saw this one, the war in iraq coming from the first days after 9/11. there were those in the bush administration who saw this as their opportunity. they were helped by war hawks on the outside. the "washington post" op-ped page, the "weekly standard," the new republic" were open billboards for the relentless push toward war. establishment media joining in offering uncritical coverage of the administration line. this is not a good statement about the american press. i'd like to believe my generation, especially those who grow up in maturity to the horror of dishonesty of vietnam would have spoken loudly against the war hawks. few, mostly on the left, did. fewer from the middle. still fewer from the right. what's worse than that in those months of late 2001, 2002, and early 2003 to oppose the war when there was time to stop it, worse yet, the question is motivation, to cause trouble for yourself. even when a whole new vocabulary, wmd, homeland, regime change, freedom fries, coalition of the willing, was being confected and infiltrated into our national dialogue. the mainstream media
w. bush is busy in his retirement painting lots of pictures of puppy dogs. we'll show you his brand new masterpieces and get a check of your forecast when "way too early" comes right back. >> i can say this moment, what other nations will not go to the summer olympics in moscow. ours will not go. [ female announcer ] going to sleep may be easy, but when you wake up in the middle of the night it can be frustrating. it's hard to turn off and go back to sleep. intermezzo is the first and only prescription sleep aid approved for use as needed in the middle of the night when you can't get back to sleep. it's an effective sleep medicine you don't take before bedtime. take it in bed only when you need it and have at least four hours left for sleep. do not take intermezzo if you have had an allergic reaction to drugs containing zolpidem, such as ambien. allergic reactions such as shortness of breath or swelling of your tongue or throat may occur and may be fatal. intermezzo should not be taken if you have taken another sleep medicine at bedtime or in the middle of the night or drank alcohol
of being scary? and then, i mean, former bush campaign strategist matthew dowd, he compared the cpac gathering to a flintstones episode, listen to this. >>> yabba dabba do, they seem rather depressed, and actually the contingent woman had it right. they did say they were unfortunately becoming the party of the rich as well. that was -- they have the problem diagnosed properly, it seems like they would like to point to just about anything else. well, it's technology, the outreach. they just need more surrogates to women, and they don't seem to be able to grasp, well, maybe it has something to do with the policies. this committee said we're not supposed to talk about policies, but if you ever want to win again, you'll have to reach out to women, latinos, minority groups, and then reince priebus gets up there and several of them asked you about it afterwards. and said i'm not getting behind xre hence reform. >> when you talk about the gop talks about change, but speaker boehner says i'm not changing in terms of same sex marriage, coming out with her statement, look at what speaker boehn
jess bush. his body never recovered. and now the ground gave way between two houses. hole is estimated to be about eight feet across and ten feet deep. >> the sinkhole i went to tell my dad. i know someone might get hurt. >> everybody was very nervous but this is my house. >> heather: scary stuff. officials say as of now the houses are not in danger but both have been evacuated as a precaution. >> rick: switching gears, in this month is shaping up to be a sport' fan dream. the miami historic win streak and tiger woods fighting to regain his ranking as the number one golfer in the world. joining us to talk about this sportscaster, jim gregg. good to talk to you. let's talk basketball, even folks that don't pay attention to college basketball started watching when the calendar turns over to march. this march madness is living up to the hype. >> it's unbelievable. everybody tunes in because every part of the country is involved. only place that didn't have a team involved is texas but they played some games down there so they are involved hosting games. it's incredible. all these upsets a
george w. bush. that is the scary thing. we need to help israel establish a second most strategic alliance with egypt. obama does not have the ability. >> sean: jordan may not be far behind and syria is going the muslim brotherhood. >> he was most tossed out president in american-israel relations and before the election and same is true today. he didn't set the reset button on this trip. it was embarrassing and refused to go to the parliament to address the officials. it's self-styled and hand picked group of students and young people and he told them to ignore their elected representatives that somehow risk a verse and their parents who have some sort to overcome the legacy of mistrust. to tell holocaust descendants there is no healthy reason for skepticism is embarrassing and wrong. >> sean: ryan. >> let me give you an idea how little the current administration knows about the muslim brotherhood. they are celebrating the fact that the syrian rebels chose as the interim prime minister as an american, but this guy is tied to the u.s. muslim brotherhood. and u.s. ambassador for syr
. on the democratic side, the nominee is expected to be elizabeth colbert bush. her brother uses a fancier pronunciation of the name, known as stephen colbert. on the republican side, the front runner almost as famous as stephen colbert and more famous than his sister but not for a good reason, former governor mark sanford. he has a big national profile, but it is because of his fake hiking trip. mark sanford apologized, finished his term as governor and withdrew from public life for two years. now he is back, trying to win back the public's trust and respect by trying to win back the congressional seat that he once held for three terms. mr. hiking the trail is only one of 16 republicans trying for that seat. the others include the son of media mogul ted turner, his name is teddy, which makes ted turner hard to forget. mark sanford is the frontrunner in the primary, but unless he gets more than 50% of the vote in a field of 16 candidates, then it will be a runoff. he and who comes in second will have a runoff next month. the polls open tomorrow at 7:00 a.m. in south carolina. this is the f
. >> they used language that he was implicitly for citizenship. we have seen this with jeb bush who was for citizenship, in his book, don't know if he wrote it, seemed to not be for citizenship, now he is for citizenship. saw it with marco rubio, his speech at cpac, immigration reform, he doesn't even mention it. we are seeing there's a wing in the republican party when they hear citizenship, they here amnesty. and that's why they're in trouble with this. if you look at the polls, most republicans actually want a comprehensive immigration reform, something like 60%. you see this dance that these figures have to take around the issue. >> sam, it is not like rand paul didn't know. this speech was on his schedule awhile. he knew his day was coming and he was going to be talking about this in front of this audience. it seems easy to keep your story straight. >> you would think so if planning the speech. keep in mind where he came from not even a year or two years ago. in 2011 he cosponsored a bill that outlawed birth right citizenship. children wouldn't be granted citizenship. 2010, he
. bush would not meet with arafat in the white house because he knew how that devastated friends and encouraged our enemies. you remember even in the gulags in the soviet union when reagan said evil empire about soviet union, they applauded. it gave them strength. it helped them push forward. this president doesn't get it. he was in the gulag and when they found out a president used those two words, it made incredible encouragement. >> sean: same speech about alexander s., and ambassador bolton, good to see you. king of jordan said we're making a big mistake by supporting the muslim brotherhood. before i ask you a question. i want to take it back to barack obama's apology tour and ask you if this was effective. let's roll that tape. >> america like every other nation has made mistakes and has it's flaws. in america there is a failure to appreciate europe's leading role in the world. instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges, there have been times when america has shown arrogance and been dismissive even derisive. 9/11 was

around? politically? >> it's going to be tough. i think jeb bush has carved out his own segment, especially with education, but there's always the bush name. that's good and bad, but they've been a bush in the white house forever, there's a lot of people that don't remember a republican president but george bush. >> that may not be a positive. thank you, chip. you can't bring your brother to the convention with you, you have problems. thank you, mr. mayor for coming on again. >>> up next, the president is in the middle east. he seems to be winning over many skeptical israelis especially the young who are not skeptical. that could be good things for the president. don't you think? this is a big, positive trip for him. this is "hardball," the place for politics. acceler-rental. at a hertz expressrent kiosk, you can rent a car without a reservation... and without a line. now that's a fast car. it's just another way you'll be traveling at the speed of hertz. like other precious things that start off white, it yellows over time. when it comes to your smile, if you're not whitening, y

years. and it is just a colossal, strategic failure of the bush administration to know that we had almost 4,500 of america's best and brightest killed in action, over 32,000 wounded in action, and over 100,000 iraqis dead for an unnecessary war. and a war that should basically never have happened and also a war that we put our troops into harm's way, basically over a religious civil war without the amount of troops that the military generals asked for. >> what do you remember when you see this piece of news that we're reporting today? what do you remember back to the time when you were serving? >> i served in south central baghdad. it was a sunni and shia neighborhood. >> just the case today, according to what we understand now. >> exactly. and i'm still haunted by the fact that mean the of the guys i served with never made it home. to know that folks who are responsible have never been held accountable. whether that's public perception or otherwise is pretty disheartening. >> who needs to be held accountable? >> i think the architects of the war. addiction cheney, paul wolf wits,
wallace former are advisor to president bush. and gary bouwer of american values. plus, reengaging in the middle east. we'll ask our sunday panel what the president's trip means for are israel, iran and syria. and our power player of the week. a changing of the guard for the marine mascot. all right now on "fox news sunday." and hello again from fox news in washington. well, there is no doubt about it, rand paul is on a roll. his 13 hour senate filibuster on the president's drone policy spurred new interest in who he is and what he stands for so what are does he see all this going? senator paul joins us from bowling green, kentucky. and senator, welcome back to "fox news sunday." >> good morning, chris ever since your filibuster early this month your standing in the republican party shot up. as we mentioned you won the cpac straw poll. a major speech on immigration reform this week and you will headline an sestette republican dinner in may. why do you think that you are suddenly such a hot property in the republican party? >> i think people hungry for someone that will stand up on
to the u.s. senate. in the democratic primary, elizabeth colbert-bush won the nomination with 96% of the vote. here's your first morning's dish of scrambled politics. republican senator rand paul talked about immigration reform to hispanic business leaders saying immigrants are an asset to america, but he didn't get very specific about his solutions. >> i think the conversation needs to start by acknowledging that we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants. if you wish to live and work in america, then we will find a place for you. >> when the senate votes on the democratic budget resolution this week, there may be a number of amendments voted on. vote a rama may include democratic amendments on the environment or republicans trying to substitute the house budget plan. >> and cool under pressure tuesday during his state of the city address when a man rushed onto the stage, threw down a flag and started yelling. security wrestled him to the ground. the mayor said it happened so fast he didn't have time to be scared. >> and the trip to israel has released this official
, president george h.w. bush. then president bill clinton made up for that 12 years of neglect by visiting israel three times. and president george w. bush visited israel once in the last year of his presidency. so not every president visits israel, especially republican presidents, but modern presidential candidates do visit israel. barack obama actually first went to israel in 2006 when he was still an illinois senator. he went again in 2008 when he was running for president. you'll know chris christie is serious about running for president when he schedules a trip to israel. mitt romney went to israel last year in a desperate attempt to exploit a republican lie, that there was some kind of difference between president obama and it's really prime minister benjamin netanyahu about what the borders of israel should be. romney was aided and abetted in that lie by netanyahu, who is an old friend of romney's. they worked together 30 years ago at a boston consulting firm. as we reviewed last night, netanyahu left no room for doubt, he wanted mitt romney to be the next president of the united s
's documentary, "hubris: selling the iraq war" is on msnbc at 9:00. it details how the bush administration misled america into a costly, bitter, unnecessary war. >>> joining me now is chris hayes, host of "up with chris hayes." he'll be hosting a special program tonight at 10:00 p.m. they still change the rationale for the war. what is your reaction when you heard this talk this week? >> i found myself more outraged. i think i thought that i had gotten over how angry i was about what happened in iraq. but i think a lot of people are feeling how little the nation actually came to terms with what we did and how little the people who drove that have been punished or have been sanctioned, have been held to any kind of account. there was a midterm election which was a accountability moment on iraq and 2008 election which was in many ways a real referendum on iraq as well. but beyond that, beyond that, there has not been a level of disgrace or accountability for the people that made this war happen. the people that cheer leaded the war and hundreds of thousands of iraqis. that number -- >> hundreds and
in the face to americans especially the victims of 911 and the families. >> it is personal for jim bush and retired special agent. >> 3,000 people were murdered. he played a very small part but he was part of the conspiracy. >> from the beginning he wouldn't give up anything. nothing about him fit. we knew it. we knew in our gut there was something wrong. >> chazeh arrived in july 2, '00 from saudi arabia. >> he settled into patterson new jersey. >> patterson, new jersey where 7 of the hijackers passed through before the 9-11 attacks. >> patterson is the launching pad for the plot. >> it is the only place we can connect -- we can't put them all together in one time or one meeting place because they blended into the community. >> it is here that he met up with another key facilitator of the hijackers a jordanian. he remains a secret of 9-11 ass f -- as fox news reported. >> he had apartments in all three states. >> evidences part of the work in p criminal work in patterson. >> he had no job. >> he was always very well trained played the part of a big shot on the street. >> several months

to me. >> and governor, how have nevada politics george w. bush won the state twice. now president obama has won state twice. we've also seen huge shift in the latino demographics going from 20% in 2000 to 27% in 2010. have the politics there really shifted? >> it shifted a lot over the years. president clinton, of course, won the state also. perhaps that's why he wrote the forward to my book. because i ran that campaign, but nevada has historically been one that has a combination of a democratic and republican leadership in various offices. the demographics in las vegas have changed dramatically. we have many more hispanics moving into the community. much more democratic registration. that is a reason i think president obama has carried nevada the last two elections as opposed to previously when george w. bush did. >> so do you see nevada in the future becoming more and more blue, going more and more blue with the explosion of hispanics and latinos that will be there? or do you think it's going to be a swing state and go back and forth? >> i think we're always going to be in play. i thi
chavez. that is not an exaggeration. imagine what would happen if bush turned around and nominated the grand kliegle of the ku klux klan to a cabinet position where he would be deciding on discrimination lawsuits. that is exactly what's happened here. >> that's incredibly offensive. and now we're hearing gop senators vowing to block the perez nomination. why? because perez is a champion for voting and minority rights? it was his office that fought to block vote are i.d. in texas. it was his office that fought to have voter i.d. blocked in south carolina. it was his office that sued nerve joe arpaio for discriminating against latinos. he's a fighter for civil rights and as lake secretary, he'll stand up for the rights of the working class. thanks for much whatting. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> reince priebus. what more can i say? let's play "hardball." >>> good evening, i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with that bridge being detonated down in texas. wow. that's what reince priebus, himself, is doing to the republican party. he talks about b
years ago tonight that then president george w. bush announced to the nation the war in iraq had begun. >> my fellow citizens, at this hour american and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations. to disarm iraq. to free its people and to defend the world from grave danger. >> shepard: a war that lasted more than 8 years, killed almost 4500 u.s. troops. wounded more than 30,000 others. and officials estimate more than 100,000 iraqis are dead. rick leventhal rode along with the u.s. marines who led the ground invasion. he is live in our new york newsroom in new york. >> 10 years ago tonight the marines we were with had already opened fire at the guard post. we had incoming mortars scream over our heads and watch over a berm as the aerial assault began on the hill. [explosions] >> coalition jets and cobra helicopters destroyed observation and communications assets, helping clear the way for troops to cross the border and invade iraq. sergeant bill gawney a gunner battalion the guy pulling the trigger on the big bush master chain gun on our big armored vehicle. one ni
there is a affinity with this administration. in the bush years there was a lot of hard hitting stuff opposed to bush, especially after the iraq war went south. then they felt all guilty. they should have done x, y and z in the beginning. they were really tough. i think there really is a difference in how hard hitting the networks are depending on whether there is a conservative or a liberal in office. >> bill: i agree 100%. call them low information voters are becoming the majority in this country because there isn't information out there anymore. >> it's buried on the internet. >> bill: not on the internet. it's all skewed. you know, objective hard-hitting, uncovering things. if you don't know information, much rarer than it used to be. >> do you think the "times" or the post or the globe or 00 "l.a. times" 30 years ago was objective? what you had then was a liberal monopoly on the netted works, on the major papers, on the news magazines, on the colleges and universities. on hollywood. it was they had all called the commanding heights of the culture. the difference is is that now we have a few diss
people needed to keep more money. why did george bush have a massive experiment in getting rich people back their money only to see the economy falling apart. you're not winning on those issues, either, john. >> joan, you're so right. you are better on this than i am normally. equal pay for equal women. your party has been slow on that. >> i agree. i'm following our party. those are the changes that we should be making. here's what the real difference between the two parties in my opinion are. >> okay. >> the republican party has always said we're going to make sure you have opportunity that leads to unlimited success but not guaranteed success. that was the american dream. we've given that up because people say it's not attainable anymore and the democrats are selling we will give you guaranteed success but it's going to be very limited. >> who says that? >> no one guarantees success. >> find -- >> it's the governmental -- >> john, i don't know any >> there's no one who wants to guarantee success. >> i've never heard that anywhere. >> no, it's all about equal opportunity. we are about
and one of the biggest mistakes we made, goes back starting a little with the end of the bush administration, completely in the clinton administration, they bought into the phoniness of yasser arafat. the man was not a guy who was a terrorist who turned around. he was a terrorist who turned into a big thief. his wife is sitting in the south of france with hundreds of millions of dollars. that's the hundreds of millions through arafat, hillary clint--. >> major thief. the reason it's in the shape it's in, arafat stole the money going to the palestinian authority. >> sean: given by the united states. and to me when the president of the united states stands there with this guy's picture in back of him, it says to me, does this man have any sense of history? does he know what the heck he's dealing with? this is a man who's murdered at least 27 americans, those are the tip of the iceberg, that's i can count. one of the people who invented modern islamic extremist terrorism. he stole hundreds of millions if not billions from his people while he watched them staff starve. >> sean: an
. it was a war of will. simply the will of cheney, bush and the team. it was a matter of how to do it, find me a way to do this and 9/11 provided that excuse. what's interesting is when you look at the whole chain of events, is how many lies there were. this was not a question of them wondering about wmd. it is a question of building a case that they knew would be hollow and figuring out once they were successful and once the troops were in there and on the ground, no one would care about the rationale that just caused, so to speak, for what gets us into iraq. ultimately, it shows itself to be a lie that was cynical and one that was pre-ordained and premeditated from the start of the administration. >> you know, i attribute it to something grander than evidence. it's my experience of dealing with cheney over the years. his brain soup. certain people are hawks and some people tend to be sadistic about it. sadistic. cheney strikes me as a guy who wants to rub out his enemies politically. any enemy. >> what you -- >> david first. >> what you see in the clip that you just showed in the showtime fi
for the war seems to fall down party lines. 66% of republicans continue to stand by the bush administration's decision to invade, but 73% of democrats say the military campaign was a mistake. i'm joined by retired army colonel and medal of honor recipient jack jacobs. former pennsylvania congressman patrick murphy, first veteran of the iraq war to serve in congress. great to have both of you today. >> great to be with you. >> we've been talking a lot about iraq because of chuck hagel's confirmation and many republicans, we see the polls, they also still believe in this war in spite of the fact we know there were no wmds, in spite of the fact they've discounted certain ties between saddam hussein and al qaeda. i'm wondering, jack, how you think that all of this, the appointment of hagel who was obviously a republican, but who opposed the war, how it all plays into our current state of affairs. >> well, everything is tainted by sequestration, about the loss of funds, lots of ominous views about what'll happen to our defense posture because of cuts should they come in great pro-fusion in the n

bush added $4 trillion of debt in eight years, we have added $6 trillion of debt in four years. so we are at a very critical path and what is difficult for people to understand is the acceleration of interest payments. the president's perspective is as long as we can make our interest payments we are doing fine but the challenge is right now we pay $224 billion a year just in interest. cpo estimates within ten years we will pay $857 billion in interest. that is more than we paid for the entire war in afghanistan across 12 years. we will pay in one year just in interest payments within ten years. this is very serious. we do have to deal with this. >> mike: you told the president a story right out of the bible in your meeting with him. i'm not sure if he totally understood it. the story of king hezekiah. tell us how that related to washington's situation today. >> the clearest example of what is happening in washington today is hezekiah. a great king was very respected. led jerusalem, judah and helped protect the nation for that time but at the end of his team as king he did some pretty
was unconscionable what bush had done but enough it's fine and we don't have a problem. this democratic budget presented by the house is a joke. the thought of increasing stimulus spending 2.200 billion. solyndra wasn't have no. the -- it is this government's notion that we want to constrain economic growth by continuing to grow the size and scope of the federal government. this would not even balance the budget until something like 2045, and even then wouldn't do it in ten years we would be spending 70% of gdp on public debt. >> neil: i'm going to give the benefit of the doubt to people who can't understand money. money in and my out. that's fine. and we don't have a great spending problem. so, status quo. but we're adding more spending. we're looking at $200 million more among house democrats, $100 million among senate democrats, as if this problem doesn't exist. then we're saying, clearly emboldened by leadership to say, balancing the budget in ten years, it's not the end all be all. >> here's where we might part company. i don't see where republicans doing anything to stop that when you ha
. looked like the real mccoy. >> you'd think we could stop this 100%. the point president bush made is we have to be 100% in telling with these things, otherwise we can have a horrible incident, and it's impossible to be hundred% in anything. impossible to be 100% secure. airplanes are 99.5% secure. but things like this can happen, which gives you a sense that there's something out there and when people get annoyed at delays in the airport and having to be searched, have a little patience. it's still there. and these people have an unusual fascination with airplanes. >> neil: why? >> think how easy to bomb smaller targets. a shopping center, a building or this or that. somehow it's going back to the beginning of islamic terrorism, since the '60s, plane hijacking, plane explosions, locker by. this is their attack of choice. >> neil: have we forgotten that? the attend of home lean security let the saudis decide on who gets here and who doesn't. and most of the 9/11 hijackers were saudi. >> we may have losted a little bit of our obsessiveness about it because it's been a while, and we have a
time last night when president bush gave the order and attacks were made against leadership targets, saddam hussein in a bunker around baghdad. and since then, a lot of activity for those troops massed along the iraq kuwaiti border. they have gotten some scares with missile attacks laufrpgsed by a riraq. now it's about an hour until nightfall in baghdad. and that's when more military action could get under way. this major air and ground assault that we've been waiting for. >> well, it's ten years later and we're still dissecting what happened. you can watch hubris airing tonight at 9:00. and then you can watch talking hubris. i'm chris jansing. have a great weekend. >>> thanks to all of you. here we go with our agenda. two deadly incidents of gun violence. three marines killed overnight at the base in quantico, virginia. and a violent car chase. president obama's tour make a second stop and a meeting with a very close ally. we are expecting some live remarks. and we're going to ask joe lieberman what he thinks of the president's trip. >>> plus chicago's facing a biggest school closi
were during the clinton years and once leaning over to the bush years and then they squandered that balance. so the reason we do that is our focus is on jobs, craig. our focus is on meeting our commitments to seniors. we will not balance the budget on the backs of our kids' education or on the backs of our commitments to seniors. whether it is under medicare or medicaid. what we do is immediately begin to reduce the deficit so they're growing much slower than the economy. which is the important measure. and then we gradually get the balance in the year round 2040. which by the way is the same year that the republican balance last year, the budget last year came into balance before they changed their priority. their priority now is balance at all costs. and our approach is focus on jobs in the economy and get the deficit down in a smart way. >> let's talk about the sequester for just a moment. what's the likelihood at this point that the sequester stays in place for the rest of the year? the fiscal year? >> well, it would be a big mistake for it to stay in place. that's why we p
and interrogation techniques gone back to the bush administration. the democrats senators have given the president a pass. the house cannot give him a pass. are you going to push for speaker boehner for subpoenas. >> i think that speaker boehner, i will urge him for the power of the house, not to chase rabbits, but to get to the bottom line. we have not heard from the people who went through this debacle on the ground. if this had been a good news story we would have heard from them the next day. the fact we haven't heard from them for six months should make every american worried about what this administration is covering up. >> coming up, do you have a savings account in the bank? is there any chance the government will skim some of your savings? should you be worried? that's next and in two minutes, a mother of a girl scout gets in trouble for selling cookies. what's the cookie controversy? that's two minutes away. all r problem... ok. not in my house! ha ha ha! ha ha ha! no no no! not today! ha ha ha! ha ha ha! jimmy how happy are folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico? happier
. in foreign policies, the one thing i learned working with george herbert walker bush is it's one thing for people to trust america and have a feeling that america will be there in dealing with the national security issues. on both counts, this president obama has lost. people do not trust president obama and they are not sure that america will be there on national security. >> sean: listen, i'll be honest, i don't trust him. he's so dishonest in the way he plays politics, he's he a demagogue, he lies with abandon and the media couldn't call him out on it. i don't trust him, i don't believe what he says. i think he's phony. >> and picky, picky, picky. >> sean: i know. happy wednesday back at you. >> you're right, nobody trusts this man. >> sean: i don't trust him. i mean, if i'm bb, no way would i trust him. you go through the -- you go through whatever the motions you have to go through. it would be better if he had a strong ally, especially if they're going to have to take out iran's nukes within a year. they need a team, if not, israel will have to go alone sadly. >> the president ha
could you get whip lash. in 2004 the bush/cheney campaign built their campaign on putting ban same sex marriage on the ballot. you had santorum make outrageous comments about it. now you have a sitting u.s. senator embrace gay marriage. you've had a host republicans come out, so to speak, for it. over the years and i think you will see that grow. but chairman priebus put it into the autopsy report for the party. if the party will have a vibrant future, they're going to have to start to embrace lgbt issues. >> we're seeing a similar situation with gun control as well. 91% of florida voters support universal background checks. even 80% in gun owning households are in favor. today vice president biden and new york city mayor michael bloomberg talked about the background checks. take a listen. >> there's not one single thing being proposed. not one. not one, not one. that infringes upon anyone's second amendment constitutional right. not one. >> no doubt that requiring back ground checks for all guns sales saves lives and no doubt that the american people support it. the only question is w
actually hook a ball behind some shrubbery and blame an actual bush for once. that's what i'm happy about. i don't mind if he goes golfing. i wish he would stay golfing. it's when he is done golfing that i have trouble. tiger said he was a good putter. that surprises me because in real life it seems to me he is always asking for gym mys. i guess some days you are out there on the course, billy. the hole just looks as big as the area whereby deb's brain is supposed to be. some days you can't just miss. >> so you don't have any problem with the president recreating with mr. woods who dubious resume. you don't see any problem there? >> what business is it of obama's? he he doesn't care. >> bill: if the litmus test is a president can't hang around with anybody with personal problems he is going to be real lonely in washington.

would say that is christie. representing the party, kind of like the george bush appeal. i say real thing more from here than above the neck. but rand paul is the leader of the republican party, or at least the leader of the race for 2016. >> he is one of them. >> he won the krp pac straw poll. and he has this appeal to under 40s that none of the others can match at this point. i think he is interesting as the most, the best friend that the restaurant industry in america could possibly have. he is pro pathway. again -- >> are you about rand? >> pro pathway to citizenship. anti-being droend in cafes and pro deciding whether or not they want to have black people go into the restaurants. there. >> you can forgive my confusion when you said restaurant industry. i thought you were talking about chris christie. >> no, no, rand paul. >> i don't know about rand paul as the leader for 2016. he has gotten a lot of energy. i has a lot of thing, he won the cpac. i think he is a better politician than his dad is. i think he has a broader reach in terms of actually getting the nomination in 2016.
seat. over on the democratic side, elizabeth colbert-bush easily won the democratic primary. >>> now sanford's showing leads us to the question, what separates the political wrecks from the rebounders? >> indeed i did have a relationship with ms. lewinski that wasn't appropriate. >> i have not been honest with myself, my family, my constituents, my friends, and supporters and the media. >> here to talk about political comebacks, democratic strategist and former edwards campaign communications director chris kafinas. good morning to you both. >> thanks for having me. >> so, kristen, sanford was having an extramarital affair with an argentinian woman. hiking in the appalachian trail became synonymous with cheating for a while. did you think you'd ever see this? what we saw last night? >> i didn't think so. but as soon as he entered the race, hooest got the sort of name i.d. that would make him a strong contender. let's not forget besides, if you set aside this very public personal failing, he was very popular as governor. he was actually talked about as a potential contender for the re
. he was for the iraq war until he was against it, until bush became president. >> yeah. >> so as long as we have got a democrat in there, i think good people of syria can depend on carl levin to be with them. >> it's interesting he has appeared with senator mccain who is a very vocal advocate of more strength being thrown toward the rebels of syria including eluding to putting ground troops into syria and now levin and mccain combined. >> the drum beat is growing louder. this report of a chemical weapons attack seems to be something we should step back and let the investigators investigate it. >> we would have been there a long time but the past decade of war, 70,000 dead in syria. we would have gotten together with the international community. we would have figured out a way to stop the killing. >> some people would consider that a game-changer. >> yeah, 70,000? >> that's what i'm saying. you know, not so long ago, we were talking about 20,000 dead there. now up to 70,000 dead. we went in to bosnia and kosovo for a lot more than 70,000 dead. >> preiraq war and goes to show you how mu

about mr. ailes he advised ronald reagan when he was running for president and george h.w. bush. what kind of impact did he have on those two men? >> they both won so i guess it was a positive impact. they brought roger in as a debate coach for reagan. that's a cool thing to be the debate coach for the great communicator. it's like being mohammed ali's body guard. >> all of rogers competitors want to know how he does it how he was able to create this channel in particular such a short time to become the cable news leader. did you get a sense of what drives him and what is his success story? >> rorntion is a very competitive guy. he was competitive when he was running the mike douglas tv show when he was in his mid 20's. he was competitive as a political consultant and he wants to win. i think shep smith said to me the only thing he wants to do more to beat cnn is for cnn to lose to him. >> clayton: i think he has done that if you look at their ratings. the book is "roger ailes off camera.
